    Number of vessels in the program: 6

    Geographic scope of the program: North Sea

    Equipment employed in the EM / ER:

    The EM system used in the trial was developed by Archipelago Marine Research Ltd, Canada. It consisted of sensor, imagery, and control units (McElderry et al., 2003; Ames et al., 2007). The imagery unit had up to four waterproof armoured-dome closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras. During all catch events, it recorded overhead views of the working deck and catch- handling areas, and closer views of the discard chutes. The sensor units included a hydraulic pressure sensor, a photoelectric sensor to detect winch-drum rotation, and an independent Global Positioning System (GPS). The last recorded the geographic pos- ition along with the vessel name, date, and time of all activities. The sensors and cameras were connected to a control box located in the wheelhouse.

    Goals of the program:

    1. Establish if REM can supply the sufficient documentation for a CQM.
    2. Discuss implementation of CQM, in regards to new technologies
